Nassau, Bahamas — There will be more road rage created on the streets of the capital as the Ministry of Public Works announced plans to close more roadways in an already congested situation.
This coming week the department announced more closures during the week of the opening of schools. Some private school will reopen creating more confusion, frustration and chaos on the streets. WHEN WILL José Cartellone Construction Company complete ONE, ONLY ONE CORRIDOR FOR THE BAHAMIAN PEOPLE?
For one solid year they were making repairs to the East Street South and Pinewood Gardens zone. We cry shame on the company for creating such a mess on our roadways.
